The Blue Moon Bar

The Blue Moon Bar is located just North of Las Cruces, in Radium Springs, NM, 13060 North Valley Drive (old highway 185), right past mile marker 15. This place is a real down-to-earth, rural, honky-tonk. Not only a bar, but a really good restaurant too, serving Mexican and American food, the Green Chile Cheeseburgers are fantastic as well as the Enchiladas and Steaks. Live bands on weekends, great food and lots of honky tonkin country fun.
The Blue Moon is a great place to spend a summer evening, the outside patio is open, music is bumping and drinks are flowing, just remember to bring some insect repellent, as the bar is right by the Rio Grande River and the mosquitos are hungry. If you don't want to smell like a chemical factory, try some Skin So Soft, by Avon, works well and smells pretty good. Don't let them skeeters deter you from going, this is a great place to go for a good time.
I'm not sure how long it has been in existence, but it is actually quite a famous place. The weekend is probably the best time to go for some excitement and Sundays the bikers show up to liven things up a bit.
The Leasburg State Park Dam is right around the corner, so after a long day fishing or whatever, go check out the Blue Moon for a great steak or some hot enchiladas.
